Chiang Mai is an amazing city, and has a lot of charm for a city of over one million people. We met an Australian friend on the plane there (who, after splitting ways, we saw again at our next destination -- something we found happened a lot with us recognizing people all over Asia from other places) and lived cheaply for a couple days. We took a cooking class at a vegetarian restaurant (Northern Thailand is more attuned to vegetarianism), which was a highlight.

One of the markets... and one of millions of pineapples.
Fruit -- every single day, beautiful, glorious fruit. And haggard.

This is me if I were Thai and had to work at a market all day.
We did shrooms.....
